A Brooklyn Park dog received the mayor’s Good Canine Award for saving the life of a young boy.

Last October, Tatortot the pit bull got help for 4-year-old Peyton Anderson when he was able to smell that the boy’s glucose levels had dropped dangerously low and that he was nearly unconscious.

Tatortot woke up Peyton’s mom by pacing around the room while whining and barking. Because of that, she was able to get Peyton to the emergency room just in time.

According to a Facebook group created for the dog, Tatortot was on death row at Minneapolis Animal Care and Control when Ruff Start Rescue pulled him from the shelter; he became a foster dog in Peyton's family.

"Despite living with his new family for only a few days, Tatortot noticed something was wrong with Peyton and alerted the boy’s mother," the proclamation from Brooklyn Park Mayor Jeffrey Lund said. "Tatortot is helping to give pit bulls a positive reputation; he has shown that anyone or any dog can be a hero by saving his best friend’s life and becoming an icon of rescue dogs in Brooklyn Park."
Tatortot was honored at Monday's city council meeting.
